New words that I have found in my reading this week, from Almost Perfect:
Brux- "He's bruxing. That's the noise a rat makes when it's really happy."
Definition: grinding the teeth
and from It's Not About the Bike:
Peloton- "The spectator rarely sees the technical side of cycling, but behind the gorgeous rainbow blur of the peloton is the more boring reality that road racing is a carefully calibrated thing..."
Definition: the main group of riders in a cycling road race
Velodrome- "We went into a velodrome to look at my position on the bike and determine where I was loosing power.
Definition: an indoor arena with a banked track for bicycle races
Collate- "That first week my mother picked up all of my prescriptions, collated my medical records, scoured bookstores for cancer material, and organized my schedule."
Definition: to gather or arrange pages into a proper sequence
